I am driving myself crazy with these math problems. I understand the formula for calculating the infusion time ( divide total volume to infuse by the mL/hr rate ordered). Here is my problem:
Calculate infusion time
950mL ordered at 80mL/hr
So I'm dividing 950 by 80 and getting 11.875. The answer is 11 hours and 53 minutes. I don't know if my brain is fried or I'm just over thinking, but I cannot figure out how 11.875 equals 11hrs 53 mins. I NEED HELP PLEASE!!
What I am doing is rounding the 7 to an 8 so its 11.88. Then I am taking the 88 mins and making that 1hr and 28 mins, so I am getting 12hr and 28 mins. Its driving me insane. Any help will be appreciated!
